July Talk Announce Documentary with Hot Docs Premiere 

July Talk: Love Lives Here Directed by Brittany Farhat

Remember Never Before Tour On Now

Watch The Official Trailer Below



Fresh off the euphoric two-night Massey Hall launch of the Remember Never Before North American tour, which picks up in Victoria, BC tonight, July Talk announce their first feature documentary, July Talk: Love Lives Here. The film, by first-time director Brittany Farhat, will premiere at Hot Docs this May.

A natural project for a band that has built a compelling and artful visual world alongside their award-winning, chart-topping catalogue, July Talk: Love Lives Here asks a fundamental question: What is essential in a time of upheaval? Farhat documented the months of panic and epiphany in the leadup to July Talk’s lauded Drive-In Shows of 2020, and with the help of unreleased archival footage spanning a decade, follows the thoughtful group of artists to a crossroads of identity and circumstance.

July Talk: Love Lives Here balances the raw spontaneity of July Talk’s live performances with the intimacy of closed-circuit interactions – phone conversations and backstage moments that go unseen by fans – against a backdrop of ten years of band history.

Produced by Danuta in association with Good Job Hi Five and distributed by levelFILM, July Talk: Love Lives Here premieres at Hot Docs in May 2023. See screening details and ticket link below.

Dazzled by the Beauty of It All: Six Shooter Welcomes T. Thomason to the Label

T. Thomason Appears on CBC Q on Friday, Mar 31 to Discuss Breakthrough Cover on International Transgender Day of Visibility

Watch “Lovers in a Dangerous Time” Here.

Six Shooter is delighted to welcome T. Thomason to the label roster with new music planned for 2023. A singularly talented, multi-hyphenated performer on stage and screen, Halifax-based T. Thomason is rightly on the radar as an important artist to be heard, for his songs and his perspective. Honest, vulnerable yet firmly standing his ground, T. Thomason is ready to meet what’s ahead with uncommon composure and creative energy.

“This next chapter with Six Shooter has already pushed me to new discoveries about myself and my music. I’m so excited to continue the journey with their stellar team and share the new tunes with the world,” says Thomason. “The songs I’m working on are labours of love in every sense. I hope that will come through and wrap people up.”

As featured in Elle’s Canadian Artists to Watch in 2023, Thomason has started the year strong with his SXSW debut, his turn in new tv series Sullivan’s Crossing (airing on CTV), and this week, he appears on CBC Q to mark International Transgender Day of Visibility. T. Thomason joins host Tom Power to discuss his cover of “Lovers in a Dangerous Time,” how T. has reimagined the classic as a new queer anthem, and the role the song played in signing his new record deal.

“I was blown away by T.’s striking interpretation of that song,” says Six Shooter Records President Shauna de Cartier. “I’ve since gotten to know T. and I believe that the music and the perspectives that he has to share will make the world a better place. We are thrilled to be a part of his journey.”



Thoughtful and true, T. Thomason’s songs shine through the darkness in the world. Since he began releasing music as a teenager, Halifax-based Thomason has been on a journey of discovery. Lead by curiosity as his way of being, Thomason approaches songwriting as a commitment to “Say tough things tenderly,” a practice that reveals an impressive depth of wisdom, clarity and courage in the young artist. Thomason’s attentive, confident presence is felt in all aspects of his music, in songs that build from ballad to banger, in songs that balance confession, confrontation and resolution, in songs that lay it all bare. Highly recommended for sweet bbs in their truest colours, and specifically guaranteed for fans of MUNA, Maggie Rogers, Troye Sivan and Kim Petras.

William Prince Shares ‘Goldie Hawn’ and ‘Easier and Harder’ Today

Today William Prince shares two more songs from Stand in the Joy, including “Goldie Hawn,” an ode to the beauty, talent and grace of great women, and one in particular, and “Easier and Harder,” an homage to John Prine. 


“’Easier and Harder’ is about giving love a chance to mature,” says Prince. “The lessons we learn when we get past the honeymoon stage. The benefits of not giving up and getting to love someone entirely; not only for their strengths but their shortcomings as well.  There’s a comedy to it that I feel gives a peek into what long-term love is like. Live and learn. Give and take.”


Listen to the new songs here. 


Since the announcement of new album Stand in the Joy, William Prince has been on the move, making his debut at the Grand Ole Opry in February. As told to CTV, to perform on the historic stage was a milestone in many ways. “To go there and be a representative of the Peguis First Nation, of Canada our home nation, and to go step on that legendary stage – it’s about as big as it gets for a songwriter and singer,” he said.

It doesn’t stop there. In addition to recent shows in NYC, LA and Nashville, Prince has also taped a forthcoming CBS Saturday session, which airs March 11, 2023. He next travels to Austin for a series of SXSW performances, including a special performance at Potluck, Luck Reunion’s annual fundraising dinner for Farm Aid. Later this Spring Prince will join The War and Treaty’s tour across the USA, see full tour dates below. 


Prince is as busy at home. Tomorrow, Saturday, March 4, he performs at the Winnipeg Jets game as part of important Winnipeg Aboriginal Sport Achievement Centre (WASAC) Night programming that includes the Jets and Oilers wearing Indigenized sweaters, Plains Cree broadcast and more. Read on about WASAC Night and Follow Your Dreams Day initiatives here

NQ Arbuckle Releases New Single “No Hands Bicycle”

NQ Arbuckle announces Love Songs For The Long Game, a new album out May 19, 2023. To introduce the collection, the two-time JUNO Award nominees share a new song “No Hands Bicycle,” today. In more Spring news, NQ Arbuckle joins Whitehorse’s tour with shows across Ontario in May-June, 2023. 

New song “No Hands Bicycle” is a fitting official introduction to the collection as a whole, a reminder that it’s never too late to pick up where you left off. A commitment to perseverance, “No Hands Bicycle” opts to keep on swimming against the tide. What other choice is there? 


The album’s title track was first released in April 22, 2020 in response to the circumstances. As it turned out, the long game hadn’t even started yet; it was only the beginning. An evergreen ode to sticking together through thick and thin, the song remains a potent balm for navigating uncertainties large and small. Now, from this vantage the song, and now album title, bears out, landing somewhere between an astute mantra for the times and self-fulfilling prophecy.


Listen to “No Hands Bicycle” and “Love Songs For The Long Game” here


On their fifth album, NQ Arbuckle reunite with Luke Doucet, who produced their now-classic Six Shooter Records debut. Reassuringly familiar, if a little bit flashier, the album’s blend of roots rock with new additions of banjo and synths find NQ Arbuckle in fine form. Not fully nostalgic, not simply regretful, Love Songs For The Long Game is for those who seek balance between constancy and recklessness, between last call and first light. 


Six Shooter Records will release Love Songs For The Long Game on May 19, 2023.

William Prince is not waiting. Not holding his breath, not keeping score, not wishing for what he doesn’t have or hoping for better days. From where he stands, those better days are here. The time to let happiness in, to welcome the good things it brings and to enjoy the good times it makes, is now. Not one day. Today.

William Prince’s new album is a declaration of joy, an active and energized mind and bodystate. This is what joy feels like, for William. It’s all around. Leading with gratitude, Prince offers his perspective on what it feels like, for him, to love and be loved wholeheartedly. “This record shines a light on one of my greatest sources of strength and happiness: her.” This is Stand in the Joy.

While memory is what shapes our concept of time, dwelling in the past prevents us from moving beyond old, bad habits that keep breaking connections. In “When You Miss Someone,” which introduces the new album, Prince describes the physical hallmarks of longing. You might not relate exactly to Prince’s example: “you can stand in front of the Eiffel Tower and wish you were in Winnipeg,” but you know the feeling. The twist, Prince’s realization, is that this is just a feeling, and it need not hold you back. Alongside also comes “Tanqueray,” a song that captures the head rush of new love, the kind that sets larger things-including the story of this album-in motion. “I want to be like Johnny Cash, an artist for the people,” says William. And the people drink Tanqueray.

Pre-save “Stand in the Joy” out April 14 2023, and listen to the first two singles off the album here.


On Remember Never Before, July Talk Asks: Who Are You Now?


New Album Out Today with Lyric Video for “When You Stop”.


Watch Here / Listen Now


“‘When You Stop’ captures everything about the band that we love.” – NPR World Cafe


“Masterfully inventive.” – KUTX


“July Talk doesn’t just stake a claim to the beginning of 2023 to kick off the year on the right foot, they may have set the standard of expectation for it.” – Nanobot


July Talk marks the release of Remember Never Before with a lyric video for “When You Stop,” hand-drawn and animated by band co-leads Leah and Peter. “When You Stop,” a swirling cyclone of a song, is about courage. A chase scene, a jump cut, a monster in the room: “When You Stop” plunges straight into the pit of your stomach. 


With “When You Stop” and the album as a whole, July Talk asks some tough questions: What did you miss? What did you face? Who are you now? Remember Never Before is an album about not taking for granted the opportunity to bring people together and be with your community. It’s an album of matter over mind. Instincts. Guts. Radical acceptance of who we are; giant hopefulness for who we can be. 


Remember Never Before thrashes against the conditions (conditioning) and goes harder and heavier than ever before, with relentless riffs and driving percussion whipping up a frenzy around Peter and Leah’s ecstatic, elastic voices. This is what happens when you say what you feel. This is also what happens when you add a second drummer. 


Cathartic in its observance of change, Remember Never Before is July Talk, now.

Whitehorse Rides High with I’m Not Crying, You’re Crying

Classic Country Turn Arrives Today with 4-Star Reviews Spring Ontario Tour on Sale Now

“Weepy, funny, hooky, bouncy and lovely.” – Associated Press

“It’s a lot of really charming country songs in the spirit of a lot of the great country records of the 70s. This is a really, really strong record.” – NPR Music

January 13, 2023 – Award-winning Canadian duo Whitehorse—Melissa McClelland and Luke Doucet—just released their eighth LP, I’m Not Crying, You’re Crying, leaving no emotional, personal, fantastical, or political stone unturned. The new album finds the pair venturing deeper into classic country music touchstones than ever before; a move that is both a homecoming and an evolution of their sound. A twist on the ever-present “pandemic album,” Whitehorse distilled and transcended the gloom and uncertainty of the time with a collection about heartbreak and loyalty; shaking things up and hunkering down. The resulting twelve-song collection is playful yet profound; masterfully simple and timeless—and is out today on Six Shooter Records surprising and charming critics and fans alike. 


Stream or purchase I’m Not Crying, You’re Crying today at this link, where you can listen to fan favorites like “Division 5,” “If The Loneliness Don’t Kill Me,” and new tracks like “Bet The Farm,” which is a chapel-ready ode to loving love. 


In addition to the release of I’m Not Crying, You’re Crying, Whitehorse have just announced an early summer tour that begins on May 18th at Sarnia, Ontario’s Imperial Theatre, and UK fans can catch the duo live later this month from Jan. 26-28 for UK Americana Week. A full list of tour dates can be found at whitehorsemusic.ca/live.


Six Shooter Records is thrilled to announce we will be hosting a songwriter’s circle at AmericanaUK, titled “Keep The Wild Flowers Blooming.”

The event will feature two Six Shooter artists — William Prince and Whitehorse — and the brilliant musicians Allison Russell and Elles Bailey will fill out the format.

The songwriter’s circle will also be hosted by legendary DJ and friend of Six Shooter “Whispering” Bob Harris, who’ll speak as each artist takes it in turns to perform new and old material alike.

The event will take place in the Hackney Picturehouse in Hackney, London, on Thursday, January 26, 2023.

Forgive + Forget, Soothe + Reset: July Talk Release “Repeat” 

Listen here 


Remember Never Before out Jan 20, 2023


High art / short form video: “Certain Father” mini films out now. Watch here


July Talk mark December 21, the longest night of the year, with “Repeat,” from forthcoming album Remember Never Before. “Repeat” is a worry stone, a meditation on the decisions we make and the reasons we make them. 


In recent years, July Talk has released a cover song on the winter solstice, a collection that now includes selections from FKA Twigs and James, Floyd Red Crow Westerman and Mclusky. The through line, true for “Repeat” too, is these are songs that wipe the slate clean, songs that shimmer with beauty and defiance, and songs that set the space for reflection as the earth tilts. 


The sounds of Remember Never Before, coming January 20, 2023, careen from the urgent agitation of “After This,” described by BBC6’s Steve Lamacq as “impatient and fidgety,” to the angular dissonance of “Certain Father,” a song that meets aggression with compassion and  challenges gendered polarities. 


The themes of “Certain Father” inform a new micro film series, a set of six explosive mini episodes in which July Talk bring their high concept visual work into the short form video era. Directed by Nadia Tan, the micro films explore the choice of tenderness over violence as rituals of understanding each other. Watch the “Certain Father” series here
